The Seiko Turtle is my favourite 4R based 200m Seiko diver and so far, I have purchased several colour variants that I like. This time, Seiko has released two more variants, the SRPC23K and SRPC25K. Both variants use the same case and the only things that changed is the dial and/or the bezel. The SRPC23K has a grey sunburst dial while the SRPC25K has a blue/black dial that is similar to the Rolex Deepsea (D-Blue) except the colour goes from black to blue and back to black horizontally.
It has been years since I last posted a Seiko 5 on this blog. Therefore, this time round, I am posting one and it is one which I like and would recommend. Being a Seiko 5, there are many colour variants of this watch and the variant I have on hand is the SRPB19K.
I received another batch of straps from cheapestnatostraps.com consisting of some silicon NATO straps and a pair of vintage inspired Tropic straps. I decided to review the Tropic strap first as this is a strap that I have never used before.
This time round, I had the opportunity to review a few vintage style leather straps from cheapestnatostraps.com, an online strap shop. These vintage style straps are handmade in Sweden and are characterized by their stitched lug end and buckle end, as well as a ‘V’ stitch at the tip of the strap.
Let’s take a look at the various models.
